Exclamation 00' F350 runs about 20min then dies?

So the truck in question is a 2000 DRW super-cab with a 7.3 that has 289k miles on it.

ive had problems for a while but they never killed the truck completely until now.

pretty much what happens is i can drive the truck for a little while but then it sputters down the road until it eventually dies. then i can start it and idle for about 10 sec' until it dies again, try and give it fuel and it dies sooner, try and putt the pedal to the floor and release and it starts to rev the cuts out then starts to rev and cuts out a second time completely dieing. also i have changed the CPS and have 2 spares in the glove box.

ive done some research and have found three ideas that i am going to look into.

1. IPR
2. ICP
3. the O-ringon the injectors.

i am thinking i may replace all of them just because of the high mileage but would like input from anyone who is willing to give it.

i am looking for any other ideas on things i should maybe change out also as i have a little extra cash to toss at it to breath some life back into it. Not that its Dead(well when it actually runs anyway)

also my 1st gen edge juiced with attitude wiring harness went bad so im looking for a new tuner any, suggestions. The truck is mostly used to Tow my trailers not a pavement pounding or race truck so a good tow application for the Programmer would be nice.

Next time it dies, open the fuel drain and see what's in there...

Turn the key off as soon as it dies (so the pump isn't running) when you do this. It could be that your "mixer screens", in the tank, are getting clogged as it runs.

On the electrical side, the CPS (I see you've tried that) and the IPR are the most likely culprit. They both can have problems as they heat-up. Then, after a cool down of 20mins or so, they come back to life. An IPR is an expensive thing to just "try" (unlike a CPS) and you might be better off getting it on a good scanner (not the free scan you get the the Parts Store) and monitor all those sensors to see what happens when it craps-out...
